I have this one, too. It's the only one I know the name of, because it's new and the nameless others were imported from my old garden. Great for the shady moist corner. And they just get on with it, don't they?

Thank you both. Yes, they do Oji...and great for cool shade.

I do love this one, and like Oji know the name because it is a new one, all the others are un-named......could do with a fern expert?

Yes, that would be great A. I certainly find the names very tricky....unlike most plants, the names of which just seem to glue themselves in my brain..these ones are totally forgettable!

The Latin names are awful, but the English name are much easier to remember, I moved so many last year when we took the hedge out, they are coming up all over the place......
